Roman Vakulchuk: Semipalatinsk Nuclear Testing Site is a unique place for researchers

Kazakhstan has become the first country to shift to peaceful use of atom. The renunciation of the world's fourth largest  nuclear arsenal and closure of the Semipalatinsk Nuclear Testing Site underlie the formation of a positive image of the country in the entire world. "This step turned out to be an important tool of foreign policy and diplomacy of Kazakhstan," says Doctor of Economics of the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs Roman Vakulchuk in an interview with Kazinform.
